Dear Patron: The Resources portion of the CSS website is the successor to the International Relations and Security Network (ISN). As in the case of its predecessor, the fundamental purpose of the Resources section is outreach -- i.e., it features the publications and analyses of CSS experts, external partners and like-minded institutions in order to promote further dialogue on important international relations and security-related issues.

This Week's Two Security Watch Series

This week, our first Security Watch (SW) series focuses on the global terror threat the incoming Trump administration faces; NATO’s available limited nuclear strike options; what causes nonviolent Islamist groups to turn into violent ones and vice versa; applying the concepts of sea power to the ocean of space; and what the next Sunni insurgency in Iraq will look like. Then, in our second SW series, we look at the relationship between water security, conflict and cooperation; rising protests in Africa and what they portend; the prospects for climate change cooperation in the wake of the US presidential election; the dangers of an India-Pakistan crisis; and NATO's need for a new Strategic Concept.
